Favorite music: A little bit of (mostly) everything. I guess my favorite bands would be Fun, This Providence, The Audition, The Shins... those are who I generally listen to the most.
Favorite book: No favorites, really. I love books, but haven't really determined a favorite
Favorite quote: It was in my siggy for a while, but it's: "Our boats collide, we feel the breeze. We stay afloat and make the most of everything." It's from a Get Up Kids song. I also like "There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in." It's from a song I've never heard but I love the quote.
Random fact: I love video games. Most people wouldn't expect that :p

About your dog(s): Belle is a bluetick coonhound and we estimate that she is approx 7 years old. Beezer is (best guess) a greyhound pointer mix and we estimate him to be about 5 or 6
Interests: DISNEY!!!!!!
Favorite music: Country. I really like a bit of everything... if anyone ever looked at my ipod they would have me committed thinking I had multiple personalities lol.
Favorite book: Gosh I don't know. I'm the kind of person that reads a book once and then move on to the next one but I've always had a soft spot for Charlotte's Web... yes I know that's a kids book :p
Favorite quote: Just about any Walt Disney quote. there are so many good ones. "It's kind of fun to do the impossible"
"If you can dream it, you can do it."
"You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you."

Random fact: I am a 5 year old trapped in a 30 year old body lol. I love to play with toys, play games, play on playground equipment etc etc. That's why I like Disney so much... it's the one place I can act like a child and no one notices. In the real world I get a lot of strange looks lol





I can't find a photo of the dogs at the moment lol I need a better system for organizing all my photos
Tanya, I just gotta say it... You look fabulous!!!!!

Nickname/Preferred name: Beanie. Imagine that.
Occupation: Radio by day, dog training by night, graphic/web design by whenever I can get some cash thrown my way for a project.
Age: 27
About your dog(s): Auggie, six year old bad bad bad sheltie; Pepper, three year old sheltie pretending she's not bad (currently lives with Auggie's breeder); and Payton, not quite one year old sheltie, still refining his badness.
Interests: Running, training the dogs, agility, baking, video games, photography and scrapbooking, other artistic things when I have time/inspiration.
Favorite music: A little bit of everything. I largely gravitate towards things of the rock nature, be it classic rock, modern rock, alt rock, punk rock. I also really love techno and other dance stuff.
Favorite book: I honestly don't think I have just one I could say is my all-time fave.
Favorite quote: "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
Random fact: I work in a job where I'm at a computer all day, and look for jobs (design) where I'd be at a computer all day... but I actually prefer to be up, doing stuff, and NOT be sitting in front of a computer.

I don't have many pics because I'm almost always the one behind the camera. I bought a remote for my camera so I'll try to get some more recent pics today or tomorrow of me with the boys... in the meantime:

my little Peppy. just one of those pictures. apparently if you see me and Pepper together it's obvious she is my dog and I am her person. I don't know how that works, it just does. I've always loved her with all my heart so I guess that's why.


all three brats! I had to hold the two younger ones because they were trying to make a break for it, haha. And Auggie is like "I'm SIX! I'm a GOOD BOY! I can STAY! LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME."

About your dog(s): Oakley - he is a 7.5 yr old, crazy mutt. He has been one heck of a handful from the beginning.

Interests: I'm mildly obsessed with my job, love learning about health/nutrition/exercise, cooking, outdoorsy stuff & watching TV

Favorite music: top 40 hits. Seriously.

Favorite book: ehhh...I love so many that I read. Bridge to Terabithia is a childhood favorite though

Favorite quote:
"Never mistake motion for action." - Hemingway
"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time." - Bertrand Russell

Random fact:I was born with a gigantic birthmark that covered like 1/3 of my body. I looked like an oreo coming out of the womb. Luckily, it has drastically faded over time!

~ J. K. Rowling

"In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life: it goes on."
robert frost

TAYLOR SWIFT

The Gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. ~Charles W. Eliot

‎"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars..to change the world.â€
— Harriet Tubman

The world isn’t split into good people and death eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is what the part you choose to act on. That’s who we really are.
SIRIUS BLACK

What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?
JOHN GREEN

Words can break someone into a million pieces, but they can also put them back together. I hope you use yours for good, because the only words you’ll regret more than the ones left unsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone.†- Taylor Swift

It is better to be faithful than famous

At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may, in fact, be the first steps of a journey.
- Lemony Snicket

Random fact: I'm an introvert. Many people consider introverts to be shy, but I'm not. I love my friends and family, I enjoy the company of people and I am very talkative and outgoing.
but I need to be by myself to re-charge and need alone time/quiet or else I get very very stressed

Some pictures

Did you assume I was white with blonde hair? :rofl1:

I generally assume you are a girl on chaz, unless you post pictures (or give me a reason to think otherwise!). There are so many girls.

It's just the picture that comes to mind. You are all petite ladies with long, straight blonde hair in my eyes. Unless your icon is of you, I just kind of think you all look alike. Like a giant Chaz army.

This is what you all look like


And I'm a redhead, so it's not even like I was thinking you all look like slightly different versions of me!

Also, everyone but Blue and Eddie are girls.

It's funny, all of the non-dog related forums I've ever been on have been populated almost entirely of men. But on all of the dog related forums I've been on, the vast majority are women.
